  • This Micro Cap Dividend Play Deserves a Spot on Your Watch List [View article]
    I really cannot believe the number of responses to Cold Stone here. I've never owned a franchise, but I always thought the whole idea was that you were buying a "proven" business model, and the help of those who have been successful with it before.

    It truly saddens me that this company has done such awful things to it's franchisee's. Bankruptcy, divorce, the list goes on. I personally vow to never again set foot in a Cold Stone.

    I guess the president of the company is mistaken then...

  • Lorillard: The Only U.S. Tobacco Stock Worth Owning [View article]
    Very good article. Well researched and articulated. I like the American tobacco market because of it's regulated monopoly and very loyal customers. A lot of focus is on MO and PM but I will look more into LO. Thanks

    mjk0259 - nice catch. That was my mistake, operating income should be in billions of dollars, not millions. Apologies.

    I own JNJ and would like to add ABT soon. I do not own HGIC but a close friend of mine and fellow investor does. He feels good about them, but like clayking, only has a modest position.
